What's new in Episode 210
• John wanted to know if his CompUSA extended warranty that he purchase for his laptop will still be valid in light of the companies decision to close all its stores. From what we understand CompUSA through TAP will honor all of its extended warranties. For more information checkout CompUSA's Consumer Help Questions.
• Gordon and a half dozen other viewers took us to task over Synergy's ability to share multiple screens. While Synergy does allows sharing of keyboard and mouse it will not share a screen. Many Mea Culpa's on my behalf. I was thinking incorrectly of the way I use VNC over a local area network and conflated the two.
• Belkin's Network USB Hub is a great way to share USB devices like printers, scanners and storage devices across multiple machines. Although not compatible with more unique USB devices all my storage devices, printer and scanner at home work well. The biggest strikes against it are its current Windows only support and 10/100 network interface.
• Larry commented: "Roger, you are right to question the new 4 GIG reporting in Vista SP1. It only reports the amount of RAM in the computer, not the amount of RAM available to the operating system. This update is apparently for people who are not advanced users. No more questions from them since the operating system reports 4 GIG now even though the operating system still has apx. 3 GIG available for use."

• Jason Cross from Extreme Tech drops by for an end of year look at video card highlights of 2007 and what you should expect to see in 2008.
• Although John Dvorak spilled the beans last week, I'm gonna make it official. As of the Dec 28th, 2007 I'll no longer be an employee of Ziff-Davis Media, and consequently no longer the producer/host of DL.TV. It's been a wonderful 2 years. While it hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows DL.TV has definitely been a rewarding and fulfilling experience.
• I want give special thanks to all of the guest hosts on the show; Veronica Belmont, Morgan Webb, and Annalee Newitz. They're all dear friends who offered me a helping hand when I needed it most. I also want to give special thanks to Robert for providing me much needed support in producing the show and offering a friendly ear to bounce ideas and topics from.
• To all of you who've supported the shows these many years and me these past few months, thank you. Robert and the rest of the DL.TV team have new plans in store for the show next year. I encourage all of you to show your support as they ready a new year of shows.
• If you want to catch up with me, know where I can get a great deal on a decent sounding cello, or share in my comic-book/sci-fi/lucha libre/cult movie/muscle car geekdom you can find me on Facebook or Pownce.
• And finally, Robert wanted to thank the loyal DL.TV fans for making it an awesome 2007 for the show, and he wishes everyone the best for 2008! Also, our Folding@home crew's efforts are nothing short of amazing and he predicts the new year will see us break into the top 10.
